Los Compadres

First ascent: Corrado Pibiri, Vincenzo Carcangiu 05-06/2013
By: Planetmountain
Area: Sardinia, Group: Supramonte, Peak: Gole di Gorroppu, Country: Italy, Region: Sardinia

Pleasant "easy" new route at Gorroppu established by Corrado Pibiri and Vincenzo Carcangiu: 335m high, 7 pitches, excellent grey limestone slabs. Bolted throughout, the Los Compadres is graded 5c+.

GETTING THERE

o get to the face there are two alternative approaches. Either start, as for all other Gorroppu routes, from Dorgali and the Ponte di Sa Barva bridge and continue past Hotel Supramonte for a further 15 minutes within the canyon (1.30 hours). However, the first ascentionists recommend approaching from the wild Urzulei, from the sheepfold of Sedda Ar Baccas. Park the car here and follow the path Sa Giuntura where the rivers Titione, Orbisi, Flumineddu meet (about 1 hour). From here continue along the riverbed towards the Gole di Gorropu, on the left bank and with the help of steel cables, past first pool. Continue along the river bed and just before reaching a second pool (Lake Sifone) scramble steeply up to the left to reach, after circa 100m on the right, a col. With the help of the cable easily reach this col. Now on the Sa Forada scree slope, descend quickly to the base of the Su Gorropu Gorge and the start of the route (1 hour).
